Video: We Blast Around Five Of Our Favourite New Tracks In Mario Kart 8

Mii spotted in rather tight racing leathers

Mario Kart 8 is creeping ever closer, bringing with it plenty of excitement for Wii U owners. Nintendo produced a rather entertaining Mario Kart 8 Direct recently, and there's plenty of buzz about this one online.

Like many others we're planning quite a few videos ahead of release to show you what it's all about, but in a similar style to previous videos for games such as Super Mario 3D World and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze we're aiming to just given some tantalising, teasing looks at some of our favourite parts. Hopefully enough to excite you, without spoiling entire tracks or secret routes.

To kick us off below is a short video with snippets of five of our favourite new courses. We chose the following ones:

  • Water Park
  • Shy Guy Falls
  • Sunshine Airport
  • Mount Wario
  • Bowser's Castle

Your humble writer plays as his Mii in this video, so if you always wanted to see a bespectacled, bearded Mii of a robust figure in a rather tight-fitting set of red racing leathers, this is the footage for you.

Enjoy!
